Silhouette Project: Birthday Shirt

Remember, you can cut the vinyl with scissors.  Here I opted to use my Silhouette.  I could have used any fonts, but I wanted more of a “design” – – did you know that Silhouette offers designs for only $1.  And when I bought my machine it came with a $10 gift card to their design store – bonus!!  So I searched under birthday and found several I liked – I ended up with “Birthday Girl”.  I also found a design of some candles in a set of 3 – I just used it twice for 6 candles for her 6th birthday.  Once you download the designs, you can use them over and over.

For me, I had a little trouble getting the iron-on vinyl to stick – it was inevitable since I was trying to make it at 11:30pm the night before her birthday.  Anyways, I think I forgot to pre-wash the shirt – you know how they say shirts directly from the store may have chemical coatings on them – I believe it now!  I thought I got it to work but after I washed it some of the design had come loose – I ironed it again and it worked perfectly – I think because now the shirt had been washed.  So once again, it was me that was the problem, not the product.  Sorry about the rambling – just putting the whole story out there.

    I’m so glad for your “rambling”! I follow your blog, but I came back to this post to figure out how to do heat transfer on a shirt. If I hadn’t read your info, I wouldn’t have washed the shirt first. Whew! You saved me a birthday gift disaster. :)
